Gazdic (illness) was activated off injured reserve Monday. Gazdic missed just the minimum one week after coming down with an illness and looks set to draw back into the lineup for Monday's contest against the Capitals. The club has yet to announce a corresponding roster move, but one will likely come before the start of Monday's tilt to clear the way for Gazdic to return.
Gazdic (illness) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. Gazdic was placed on injured reserve to open up a roster spot for Lauri Korpikoski, who will return to the Oilers' lineup Wednesday against Chicago after missing the team's last eight games with a head injury. Gazdic will be eligible to draw back into Edmonton's lineup Monday against the Capitals, but could be sent down to the AHL once healthy.
Gazdic was held out of practice Monday with an illness, Jason Gregor of TSN 1260 reports. An illness appears to be plaguing multiple Oilers, though the extent of Gazdic's ailment is unclear at this point. The club has some time off before it's next contest, but the winger is day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's tilt against the Blackhawks.
Oilers forward Luke Gazdic logged 8:04 of ice time and took one shot on net in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Blues. Gazdic had been dealing with an undisclosed injury that forced him to miss some practice time heading into Thursday's tilt, but the ailment is no longer an issue moving forward. Gazdic will likely once again suit up as a fourth-line winger for the Oilers in Saturday's matchup with the Predators.
Luke Gazdic (undisclosed) did not practice Monday, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
